A Thousand Suns by Jim Haberkorn

5 stars

Wow lots of action and drama from Idaho to Switerland. With Americans,Germans,Russians and Swiss as main characters. This book follows Einstein's Trunk. I have not read it but events from it are mentioned a few times and now I want to read it too.
Rulon Hurt is a cowboy rancher in Idaho, his wife Yohaba is Swiss. Her grandfather was Einstein.
Rulon used to be a agent from the State department in Switzerland in the OCD. Now because of events in Einstein's Trunk every six months the Russians send over thier best fighter from new agents to a bar in Idaho to fight Rulon.
Rulon tries to talk the guy out of fighting through his wife translating. Yohaba instead of translating tries to egg on the Russian.
Boris is the Russian who is sent to fight Rulon. The fight is over fast. Some skinheads want to beat up Boris and Rulon takes on all four of them. They take Boris out to thier ranch to stay.
The skin heads are members of the Nazi group in Idaho and they don't take it easy that 4 of thier guys got beat up by one guy. They want revenge and start a chain of events.
In Europe one main Nazi group has stolen two virus and one of them is the plague. They have to be stopped. Helmut finds out that Rulon Hurt is in Idaho so he leaves the case with the viruses in a train locker and flies to Idaho for revenge on Rulon.
Thier is lots of action and everytime you think it will slow down something else happens. Boris and Yohaba get close and rely on each other as they try and find out what is in the locker. I did not want to put the book down till I had finshed reading it. If thier is a third book I will buy it and read it for sure.
I like Rulon and would like to see more of him again some day. Boris has lots of surprises in him. Yohaba finds it is not so easy to solve problems with killing someone.
I like it that everytime someone started to swear they got stopped. This is a clean read but a lot of fights in it. Spies in it.
I never realized how much of what Hitler did was planned out to such a extent and groups are still doing that today.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest reviews from Netgalley.

Hi - thanks for the positive review. And I'm very glad you enjoyed A Thousand Suns. I'm about half way through writing the third book in the series and have an idea for the fourth - unfortunately my day job keeps getting in the way. Jim Haberkorn
